Well now we are spoiled because it will be hard for any dive shop to measure up to the service LBD gave us today. Family of four, boat to ourselves, accompanied on both dives by wonderful dive master Luis plus owners Steve and Tami--- who obviously love what they are doing and it shows. The boat is roomy and clean, they provide dry towels, dive computers, defogging solution, lots of great snacks and teach you tricks like rinse out your regulator before the dive with clean water and have a mint after to get rid of "dive mouth." They use big heavy steel tanks, so longer bottom times (48 min first dive at 85 feet) and no weight belt which is so much more comfortable. Having a dive master plus both owners meant 3 pros looking for fun stuff, and six eyes on our two teenagers----first dive I have really enjoyed since they started diving! Kids had not been that deep, on a wall, or in strong current, and Luis did a great job explaining what to watch out for, how to dive those conditions, and then the 3 of them kept a close watch on everyone. And it was beautiful--- gorgeous, colorful coral formations, lots of fish, tortugas, groupers....Second dive was shallower, still some current...and when we didn't run out of air at the same time Luis orchestrated having Steve take one person up while the rest of us enjoyed more bottom time. I think someone called this "valet diving" and sign me up for this approach every time---no schlepping or setting up gear, which is a treat plus I know I didn't set anything up wrong. They had preselected BCDs based on our heights/weights, and after the first dive Steve commented that a BC needed repositioning on the next dive because he thought it would be more comfortable for the person with a minor adjustment. Truly a wonderful experience and yet very reasonably priced. BTW when you are taking the ferry check out www.swim4thereef for ferry discounts. I recommend LBD wholeheartedly!!!!!!!!
